Workplace feel-goods

Each year, workplace giving generates more than $3 million for the United Way of Central Minnesota. Three million! That number is as impressive as it is integral to our fundraising efforts in order to continue to bolster the programs we spearhead in our community. A workplace giving campaign grants businesses of any size the ability to rally its employees around a charitable cause that directly impacts people in the community.

How to Initiate Workplace Giving

Often it can be difficult for companies to initiate and incorporate workplace giving programs. Businesses might not know where to start, how best to engage their staff, and just how motivating it is when everyone is involved. Here’s where United Way of Central Minnesota can really help out. We know exactly how to integrate workplace giving, and have both the decades’ worth of anthropology as well as the best resources including kickoff, training, and kits with educational materials for employees.
